I Wanna Slip Back


I wanted to bloom
in the lap of green.
Intolerable it is to
stay as unseen!

I lift up my head
and cast my look.
I see the glum shade,
thru the mirror of brook.

No longer, I stay there,
where joys I lack.
To sleep, in the deep,
I wanna slip back.

    Beautiful poem Neela. Beautiful way you have compared nature to life.
    This poem left me wondered...
    Where I wanna slip back
    Is it to the lap of green earth, which is full of joy...
    or looking for joy thru the mirror of brook....Loved reading.. (Report) Reply
